New Support for Pregnant Women and New Mothers at Hadassah Medical Center
A new "club" for pregnant women and new mothers has opened in both Hadassah Hospital-Ein Kerem and Hadassah Hospital-Mount Scopus.
The new service offers a supportive environment, follow-up during pregnancy, a birthing course, discounts on equipment for mother and baby, and benefits at the Hadassah-Ein-Kerem "Baby Hotel," where new moms can stay after leaving the hospital for some extra rest and support. "Giving birth should be a positive and empowering experience for the mother and her family and we are doing our best to achieve this," says Nava Braverman, Head Midwife at Hadassah- Ein-Kerem.
"We are situated at a very significant crossroad for the woman and her family," adds Sima Chaimson, Head Midwife at Hadassah-Mt. Scopus. "There is inflation in information about giving birth which may confuse. We opened a hot line for our club members and invited them to call us anytime with any question they have."
Hadasit, Hadassah’s Technology Transfer Arm, Reviews
When the Hadassah University Medical Center’s physicians suggest a
solution to a medical problem which can lead to the development of a new
medicine or product, Hadasit, Hadassah’s technology transfer arm, explores its
feasibility and supports the promotion of those viable ideas with innovation
potential. Although 2012 has been “a year full of challenges for the life
science industry,” says Einat Zisman, Hadasit’s Chief Executive Officer,
Hadasit still signed 125 agreements for clinical trials, all to be done at
Hadassah. In addition, Hadasit signed 15 agreements for cooperation and
commercialization of technologies that were developed at Hadassah. Click here
